Hi everyone, with November fast approaching we need to be thinking of next month's challenge hosts.
After much discussion with AdamH and St. Gloede, we are also looking to amend the rules for the Challenges from this point forward. These amendments will not affect the vast majority of challenge participants, however, it is necessary that they are explicitly stated.
It has recently come to my attention that the Challenge rules are not prescriptive enough. It is hoped that by making the rules more prescriptive it will be easier to disqualify participants who log over 24 hours worth of viewing in a single day - especially when it happens on multiple consecutive days.
The rules that AdamH, St. Gloede and myself have discussed adding are:
- Films must be watched on single speed (not sped-up)
- Films must be watched one at a time (no two screens at once)
- Films must be watched in their entirety in order to be included
It is anticipated that these rule changes will not affect 99% of participants, however, by having the rules explicitly stated, it will ensure a more level playing field for that 99%.
So, I would politely request that all November Challenge hosts add those three rules to the OP
While I haven't talked to the other Mods myself, AdamH and St. Gloede assure me that they are in agreement that a more explicit set of rules will benefit the Challenge series and forum community as a whole moving forward.
And ahem, in other news, these are the November Challenges.

I could take up hosting Unofficial. I just won't include a Bonus Challenge since having that extra element is what has made keeping the OP updated so daunting for me this month with work pressures and all. Of course, if somebody else wants to include an interesting Bonus Challenge, I could just as easily host one of the other challenges - with a preference for Mexico.
